“[The phone call] was in the evening,” Weghorst told Sky Sports. “It was already quite late, I was texting with my agent because I wasn’t happy with [Besiktas] training and was complaining to be honest. I was laying on the bed with the baby in my arms and he decided to give me the call.

“He thought it was the right moment because he’d been planning it for a while and it got so far that he trusted to tell me. I will not forget this call. I knew from the first second there was no doubt.

“When you walk around here [Carrington] and in the gym you see the big Man United logo above you, I can try to sound tough and cool but no, this is something special and I’m really proud. I will give my all for this club.”
